by Angela Walker
One in four households are affected by addiction, and the cry of those affected is Rescue Us, also the title of Grace Pictures' first feature film. According to director Peggy Chaves, "…this story takes you from recovery to redemption. This will touch the lives of anyone who suffers or knows someone who suffers from alcoholism or other addictions."
The film goes into production on April 3 in Las Vegas.
Joshua, a private airline pilot, has a beautiful wife and a son named Sammy, which he would give his life for. When Sammy was first born something very tragic happened and Joshua did not know how to deal with it. He never imagined that things could get any worse until the day Sammy was diagnosed. There's only one that Josh feels he needs to take away his pain, for a time.
Josh and his wife Beth would enjoy a drink now and then but Beth didn't realize how much he was drinking until she caught him in some lies. When she finds out she pleads with him to get help but he refuses; there's a problem. In order to protect herself and Sammy she asks Josh to leave.
Joshua finds himself on the streets and meets someone who gives him two choices. Josh's ultimate decision will affect him and his family for the rest of their lives.
